Obituary for Evelyn H. Hosford

Evelyn H. Hosford (nee Heinz), 107, of St. Patrick's Residence in Naperville, IL since 2013, formerly of Chicago, Roselle and Aurora, IL, passed away on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at St. Patrick's Residence in Naperville. She was born March 6, 1911 in St. Charles, IL.

Beloved wife of the late William F. "Bill" Hosford, whom she married June 19, 1937 and who preceded her in death on February 20, 1976, loving mother of Bruce (the late Donna) Hosford of Naperville, adored grandmother of Dawne Martin, Debi (Fred) Murray, Bradley Hosford and Scott (Breanne) Hosford, cherished great-grandmother of Becki (Blake) Dunn; Melissa, Sarah and Reid Martin; Nathaniel and Natalie Murray; Will and Evie Hosford, great-great grandmother of Charlie Dunn, devoted daughter of the late Otto and Elizabeth Heinz, dear sister of the late Vernon (the late Gladys) Heinz, the late Roland (the late Madelyn) Heinz and the late Marvin (the late Shirley) Heinz, fond aunt, great-aunt, great-great aunt and friend of many.

Evelyn graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in physical education. She taught PE in St. Charles for several years before marrying Bill, whom she met at school. They moved to Chicago where they raised their son, Bruce, and later relocated to Roselle.

As a homemaker, Evelyn enjoyed sewing, cooking and tending the yard. She always liked doing the daily crosswords with her morning coffee and was an avid reader.
Later in life she enjoyed the north woods of Eagle River where she appreciated time spent with family. The proverbial Friday night fish fry was always a hit.

Being with her grandchildren and great grandchildren always put a smile on her face. Playing Rummy and Yahtzee made for fun times together. Volunteering each week in a District 204 elementary school Library Media Center kept her active into her nineties. Evelyn always graciously gave of her time.
